On the Horns of a Dichotomous Dilemma by Jay C. Powell, James Bernauer and Vishnu Agnihotri Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle 1 makes the point that the way we observe predetermines the conclusions we can draw.

The dictionary base is representing Swedish adjectives and verbs which were assessed of a sample of 40 randomly selected individuals, drawn from a population of 132 researchers, working in the fields of educational and psychological research. Further, the presented source materials are based on a sample of 600 pages of running text drawn from the 4000 pages of the collected interviews.

Within a research project on computer-based content analysis empirically specified content of nouns is assumed to come about through weighted verbs and adjectives connected with the nouns. Based on this assumption noun clusters have been established. This study tries to find out a method for measuring the function of adverbs within the adjectival structure. It is namely possible that the weight of the respective adjectives could change in connection with modifiers in such a degree that the...

In the current paper, it was intended to approach, to report and to devise acculturation as an interactive and a dynamic phenomenon, in which the mutual learning is shaped by the acculturative motivations. Psychology is in a unique position to approach the phenomenon of acculturation, because learning and motivation are two of its main topics. The Brazilian culture, which is still in creation, and the Portuguese cultures are fitting in a research design that aims to check out, at the same time,...
